Southbound I-75 will remain closed south of Jellico, Tennessee until at least Thursday, May 10, so that crews can continue to stabilize a section of rock slope near mile marker 143.

A section of embankment collapsed in that area on March 8.

Northbound I-75 will be reduced to one lane of traffic flow for approximately three miles in the area near the collapse, from mile marker 141 to mile marker 144.

Soil nails will be launched about 20 feet into the ground underneath the southbound lanes, towards northbound lanes, in order to stabilize the rock slope.

Motorists should expect potential long delays and use extreme caution while traveling through this area.
